| Film begins slowly but draws you into its drama
Movies based on novel are alluring as generally the distributors and producer choose the best selling to adapt into a film. White Bird in a Blizzard. written by Laura Kasischke, is well-executed coming-of- age drama with commendable performances and heart-felt story between a mother and daughter.

White Bird in a Blizzard tells the story of a teenager whose life changes when her mother disappears suddenly.

Unknown to Hollywood, Gregg Araki did pretty good job in screen adaption of the novel. The movie will take some time to build on you as it is meant for niche audience but when it does, there is no holding back. The pace is slow and the initial reel will bore out of your mind.It is engrossing especially in the later half which surrounds the mystery of Eva Green's disappearance. Screenplay is a roller-coaster ride. Editing was fine but could be better. Art direction and cinematography is good. Dialogues are nice. The movie boast of some strong performances. Shailene Woodley and Eva Green are outstanding and will surprise with applauding performances.

Overall, Film begins slowly but draws you into its drama. Good 3 /5
